T HROUGH the hard work of Coach Henry Thayer and the return of four major lettermen, Seneca was able to capture
the league 2 championship. The four boys were: Jim Garbacz, a pitcher, Jack Halldin, a second baseman, Art
Glenn, an outfielder, and Norm Pyzikiewicz, a shortstop. lt was the strong left arm of Jim Garbacz and the big bat
of Norm Pyzikiewicz that enabled us to win all six games in regular season play. After blanking our first two opponents,
South Park and East, we managed to put our hits together and defeat Technical, Burgard, Kensington, and Bennett all
by one run. Our next contest was against McKinley the league I champs, in Offerman Stadium. ln the championship
game McKinley defeated us 5 to 0.
Norm Pyzikiewicz, our shortstop, was honored by being selected on the BUFFALO EVENING NEWS All-High
Team. Jim Garbacz was placed on the second team while Jack Halldin, Art Glenn and Ron Kolb received honorable
mention. We, at Seneca, wish to congratulate Mr. Thayer and his team for their Fine showing during the 1953 baseball
